I suspect this was timed to be released after Davis Cup so there wouldn't be any "hopes" raised that he could help the team.

Maybe he was hitting for half an hour already before this. Maybe these were the first few balls he hit okay during the session.

You forget how incredibly talented these guys are. They don't forget how to play after 6 months.

No that's just the natural follow through. He's not made any significant move forward after the serve.

Nadal's arms strong!

Re: Rafael Nadal Injury/Health Update Thread : Spanish Press: Nadal not in DC etc

LOL at those judging his level by a shitty training video
Did you think he forgot how to hit a tennis ball in a few months?

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!
